Sand Powered LED Hourglass Lamps

Harness the power of kinetic energy and light the room. This Hourglass Floor Lamp design by Danielle Trofe is a four foot tall LED lamp atop a rotating hourglass. Flip the lamp over and as the sands drop down, it powers the light. That makes it essentially a human powered lamp- which is part of the design- to put you more in touch with your energy usage. There’s no details yet on availability, or how the power mechanism works, or how long the lamp lasts per flip. We do like the great modern design combined with eco-awareness. (via inhabitat)
